    coolest thing said to you while biking

    I keep my greetings on the trail simple--big smile, maybe howdy, maybe whassup. One ride I saw a guy seemingly struggling uphill. I shouted out, "beautiful day!" He smiled broadly and replied "Every day!". A good recipe for a positive outlook on life.

    "awesome! best save I've ever seen!" said during a race wherein I was out of control and sliding sideways down a loose steep slope at a good pace...I got the balls to release the brakes and forget about the trail and just aim it down, figuring that if I was gonna die at least I should do it with grace! (and it turned out miraculously). Turns out another broke his arm and another dislocated his shoulder at the same place; I think I've never been luckier.

    "For such a big guy, you are really graceful on a bike" Said to me by a female friend while riding behind me on some rocky, sketchy singletrack. I'm 6'2" 225 Lbs and always thought I had more of a mad bull style of riding, you know, plow through everything that gets in your way! Made my day!

    "Cool!"

    I did a wheelie through long, shallow puddle on an ATV path in Portland Maine. I couple kids were hanging out catching pollywogs and this ten year old boy exclaimed "Cool!" as I reached the end of the puddle.

    Since I was doing the trick to impress my inner 10 year old, it was nice to get some confirmation from an outer 10 year old.

    A couple months ago my partner told me my bike looked "Serious". That made me feel childishly proud as well.

    Not sure about the coolest....but this was pretty funny.

    Cruising down the trail, took a little off-shoot section to hit a rock jump. Didn't land so sweet, here I am sitting on the trail trying to collect my marbles.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lsd4iP8_5Do

    Stay on the trail!

    "You did it on THAT?!", from a full squish gearie, referring to my rigid single speed at the top of a long-a$$ climb.

    [edit=almost forgot...]
    And while passing a hiker he says, "Ya need a motor on that thing!" To which I replied, "Where's the fun in that?"

    "CHANGE GEARS!" Shouted from patio seating outside of some bar in downtown Baltimore. I was riding a mod trials bike at the time and spinning furiously while trying to keep up with my buddies, who were on BMX bikes.

    Not said to me, but "what would you say if I told you that I'm going to take your bike?" Out of the mouth of some thug, also in downtown Baltimore seconds before he was knocked out by a quick right (not from me)

    "Are you a Pro Rider?"

    No, that may actually be the stupidest bike related thing said to me. I had pulled into a gas station with my bike on the roof. I was still wearing my lycra and MTBR bike shirt when the attendent asked that question. I mean, what the heck team would hire a than
    56-year old rider? "Team AARP" I suppose.

    I just smiled and said no, I just rode for fun.

    In Edmonton ab on one of our local trails this kid about 19 came up and passed us on the trail. I warned him about a steep shoot with a small drop just around the corner. He yelled out, "Yea right, I'm from Whistler, BC." 30 seconds before one of the most impresive wipe outs i have ever seen.

    While sitting by a tree with my old Peugeot road bike in Toulon, France, two Americans came up to me, holding an English to French dictionary, and asked, "là où est le magasin de vélo"

    My reply? "Dude, it's right over there!"

    BTW, I am from Florida.

    Commuting home on my SS roadie - hairy legs and bike rack filled to the brim with work clothes.

    Serious roadie pulls up behind me at stoplight and exchange pleasantries. We take off and cruise to the next light. Do this couple more times. After third one, he looks down and says "Holey sh*t, you are on a single. I was trying to stay with you on those first couple of lights, but no way I'm gonna try and stay with you now!"

    Hehhehehehehehehe

    I love destroying roadies on my SS.

    I was exploring some ATV trails by my house that I haven't been on since before college when I came across a group of ATVer's stuck in some puddles. They saw me coming and I heard them say "Look, its a mountain biker" before I blasted through the puddles and stopped on the other side to try to choose whether I should stick with this trail (the trail was really torn apart) or head back and take some other ones I saw.

    When I stopped one of the guys piped up and said "Hey boy! Whatchoo ridin that there bike fer?!"

    "It's fun," I replied.

    "HA! Naw, this is fun (points to ATV), that's just HARD! (pointing to my bike)".

    From two mt. bike guys who stopped to watch me go through a rocky technical section...

    "Helllll yeah!"

    (I saw them stop to see if I was going to do it...so I did a section I always walked while riding alone. Little did they know that I was shaking for about 5 minutes afterward.)

    "how the hell are you so fast on that bike?" then someone else in their group said "i'd hate to see you on a racing hardtail. we would have been following you"

    that made me feel pretty proud after being told that by a group of really fast riders who, from what i could tell, were on a team. they all were riding either carbon fiber Trek Fuel's or carbon fiber Specialized Epic's. it made me feel pretty good being told that after being able to ride two laps at the local trail while keeping up with these guys!! it made my day!

    edit: i forgot to mention that i think they were on a team cause they all rode the same bikes, but also they all had the same gear on for the most part.

    Two of funnist damn things I heard....

    From a friend who was relative new to mountain biking, staring up at my buddy gaining his courage to go down a steep section....

    "Dude... that looks steep. Want to send your bike down on a ghost ride just to see how it does?" His seriousness mixed with his niave good suggestion made it so funny.

    The other one was my buddy that just rolled a nice drop. As I was pondering it, I expressed my grave concern about the huge tree immediately after the roll out, to which he said...

    "Don't worry about that tree, you're not going to hurt it!"

    After my buddy came out of the saddle at about 30 miles an hour on a forest service road (upper Vasquez, Winter Park), he had an obvious broken colarbone, what turned out later to be a fully avulsed broken elbow, and of course all the road rash that comes with a wreck like this.

    As luck would have it some joggers saw the crash and stepped up the pace to come help us. The one jogger was a really sweet young women who was also an EMT. As she was using the taters of his shirt to try and secure his arm; he says to her:

    "wow, you are really good at that, we should go out sometime."

    I guess it just doesn't matter how much pain you're in, sometimes the mind only has one track. FYI, she declined his offer...

    Just last night.

    Riding Betasso, three of us (all guys) came roaring down the link trail and caught up to two women who had been talking smack when we saw them earlier. When I thanked them for letting us pass, one of them says, "Well, I don't have health insurance, so..."

    He giggled and his parents drove off.

    Coolest thing said to me as I rode by (by three guys on downhill bikes I caught and passed on my Yeti 5.75) "Damn! Holy Sh!t you were flying down that. Cool."

    The funny thing is, Im not all that fast going downhill. I think their pads and heavy gear was weighing them down. Hehe.
